Kansas Supreme Court to Consider Convicted Serial Killer's Appeal

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Supreme Court is considering the appeal of a convicted serial killer who stuffed the bodies of several victims into barrels.  John E. Robinson, of Olathe, was convicted and sentenced to die in 2003 in Kansas for the deaths of 27-year-old Suzette Trouten, of Newport, Michigan, and 21-year-old Izabela Lewicka, of West Lafayette, Indiana.  He also received a life sentence in Kansas for the murder of a third woman, whose body was never found, and received life in prison in Missouri after pleading guilty to five other murders.  Robinson is raising dozens of issues on appeal, including the denial of numerous motions to suppress evidence. Oral arguments will get underway at 9am Tuesday.
